Abstract (en)

The mechanism includes a crank member (2) which is fixed to a rotatable part (1). A pivot arm (4) is pivotably connected to the crank member. A temperature dependent compensation element (7), e.g. using a bimetallic strip, defines the position of the pivot arm. A pick-off member (3) is connected to the pivot arm and is adjustable relative to the pivot arm by a control device which is adapted to the apparatus-specific temperature dependence of the temperature-sensitive apparatus. The control device may be coupled to the temperature-dependent compensation element.

Abstract (de)

Der Kurbeltrieb weist ein um eine Achse drehbares Teil (1) auf, mit dem ein Kurbelelement (2) drehfest verbunden ist. Auf dem Kurbelelement ist ein Schwenkarm (4) für ein Abgriffelement (3) schwenkbar gelagert. Ferner ist ein temperaturabhängiges Kompensationselement (7) vorgesehen, das sich auf dem Kurbelelement abstützt und in den Schwenkarm eingreift, um dessen Position zu bestimmen. Das Abgriffelement ist verschieblich am Schwenkarm angeordnet und greift in eine Kulisse (6) des Kurbelelements (2) ein, wobei die Kulisse an die gerätespezifische Temperaturabhängigkeit derjenigen temperaturempfindlichen Vorrichtung angepaßt ist, deren Bestandteil der Kurbeltrieb bildet. Durch entsprechende Radial- und Tangentialverstellung des Abgriffelements (Hub und Voreilung), hervorgerufen durch das Kompensationselement und bestimmt durch die entsprechende Gestaltung der Kulisse (6), läßt sich die Fehlerkurve der temperaturabhängigen Vorrichtung optimieren. <IMAGE>
